The Transaction

It is currently anticipated that the Proposed Transaction will be affected by way of a three-cornered amalgamation, share exchange, merger, amalgamation, arrangement or other similar form of transaction as is acceptable to the parties.

On or immediately prior to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, it is anticipated that: (i) the Company will effect a name change to such name as may be determined by Target; and (ii) the Company will consolidate the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Credent Shares”) on the basis of one “new” Credent Share for every five “old” Credent Shares issued and outstanding (the “Consolidation”).

Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, holders of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Target (the “Target Shares”) will receive one Credent Share (as they exist on a post-Consolidation basis) for each Target Share held (the “Exchange Ratio”). It is anticipated that approximately 30,336,085 new Credent Shares will be issued under the Proposed Transaction. Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, all existing securities convertible into Target Shares shall be exchanged, based on the Exchange Ratio, for similar securities to purchase Credent Shares on substantially similar terms and conditions.

There are currently an aggregate of 4,250,000 Credent Shares issued and outstanding. As a result of the Consolidation, there will be 850,000 Credent Shares issued and outstanding on a post-Consolidation basis.

The Company currently has $139,000 in debt, which will be converted to “new” Credent Shares at a conversion price of $0.40, resulting in 347,500 additional Credent Shares, post-Consolidation.

In conjunction with closing of the Proposed Transaction, Credent will also pay a finder’s fee to an arm’s length party of 1,000,000 post-consolidation Credent Shares and 1,000,000 share purchase warrants subject to Exchange approval.

The Proposed Transaction is subject to the entry into a definitive agreement, customary conditions set forth in such agreement, and acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Financing

In conjunction with closing of the Proposed Transaction, the Target plans to undertake a private placement financing of up to 8,750,000 subscription receipts (a “Subscription Receipt”) at $0.40 per Subscription Receipt for total proceeds of $3,500,000.

Each Subscription Receipt, prior to the closing of the Proposed Transaction, will automatically convert into one common share of the Target and one-half of one share purchase warrant of the Target (each a “Target Warrant”), with each whole Target Warrant exercisable into one common share of Target at an exercise price of $1.00 per share for a period of two years (the “Expiry Date”), for no additional consideration upon the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, including the conditional approval of the Exchange for the Proposed Transaction and satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the Transaction as set out in the Definitive Agreement. The Expiry Date of the Target Warrants may be accelerated if the average closing price of the resulting issuer’s common shares is equal to or greater than $1.65 per share.

The proceeds from the financing will be used to for the growth of the Target business and working capital purposes.

Arm’s Length Transaction

The Proposed Transaction is an arm’s length transaction in accordance with the policies of the Exchange and is not subject to the approval of the shareholders of the Company, except as may be required by applicable corporate law.

Sponsorship

Credent intends to apply for a waiver of the sponsorship requirements under the rules of the Exchange.
